Your Contribution Will Make A Real Difference

We are a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. As an independent school, we do not receive funding from any religious institution or taxing body. We rely on tuition and fundraising to achieve academic excellence. In addition, our commitment to financial aid makes a quality education possible for many families who otherwise could not afford it. The auction is our largest fundraising event and is vital to our financial sustainability.

We’ll Help You Build the Buzz

By becoming a sponsor, we will help you reach all of our families, representing households across several Central Illinois communities. Our reach extends from Peoria to Washington, Morton to Dunlap, and Edwards to Princeville. Your corporate contribution will be recognized accordingly. Please contact Peoria Academy for sponsorship details.
